I was told after wasting a fair amount of time completing an online application and liaising with a customer service representative that I was ineligible for a car loan because I’d qualified for JobKeeper. Even though my business had recovered strongly after an initial dip at the beginning of the pandemic. If lenders are going to apply blanket rules such as these, they need to be stated up front. As a self employed small business person, I don’t have this kind of time to waste.
Salesmen straight up lied about fees to make a sale. I'm not fighting them through the ombudsmen over an early payout fee. The early payout fee is also excessive. Way more than my home loan payout for far less credit.
We didn't encounter pros and cons during the process of our loan approval and settlement. Staff were amazing, promptly returned phone calls and emails were reliable, strong initiative, focused on our needs. Staff were exceptionally thorough in executing all procedures to required timeframes. We felt supported during a difficult time in our lives.
They were very helpful and patient with me even when the vendor pulled out of the deal shortly after establishing a settlement date. There were quite a lot of forms to fill out and the initial pre approval took some time. However, their customer service was great and they replied to emails quite quickly.
Slow, slow, slow. Took them 2 months to settle. Have to say that the sales people were great to work with and offered help and support where needed. BUT... I can't say the same about the settlements team. In a word - USELESS. Although the sales rep looking after my interest checked all emailed documents that were requested to be submitted (by post) and gave the green light, Settlements delayed settlement due to their inability to communicate across depts. They delayed again and again for other stupid reasons and when asked to fast track settlement because they were already a week overdue, they delayed yet again. Finally the seller issued me with an a late settlement charge of over $2500, which I might add, I am claiming back from loans.com. Settlement was due 6 June. Finally settled 1 July.
